Plant Based Dye Kit in Turmeric

Sold Out

Each kit comes with an all natural dye mixture we have concocted in our Brooklyn studio. A silk hankie, string, and shibori tutorial (in case you want to take it a few steps further) . You can dye your hankie in this can or use a stock pot to dye up to 5 yards of fabric. This dye mixture goes a long way! We recommend adding additional items beside your hankie to it. You can keep adding water if you want to use more than five yards but remember it will be diluted in color the more water you add.  

The Turmeric dye consists of turmeric, chamomile flowers and salts. 

There are two ways to dye your items. Bring it to a boil then simmer in your stock pot for 30-40 minutes for a deep, rich color. Or for a more vibrant "neon" yellow dilute ingredients in warm water and let items soak for 8- 24 hours. 

We don't recommend ingesting this product. If it gets in your eyes rinse thoroughly with water.

We recommend using all natural fibers with this dye such as linen, silk, wool, or cotton. Keep in mind EVERY fabric responds to dye different so colors may vary from a bright yellow to a deep golden marigold which is why we recommend testing swatches. 

If using your own fabric we recommend washing it first in a mild detergent then soaking it in 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water and hang to dry. This is not mandatory but mordanting your fabric will make your dye process more vibrant.
